Harlech Holiday Cottage With Sea Views | Fron-Hyfryd

Near BeachReal Fire

This Harlech holiday cottage with sea views is located right in the heart of the famous castle town. Perched between the mountains of Snowdonia and the beautiful sandy coastline of Cardigan Bay, the cottage is walking distance to a lovely selection of shops and cafes and restaurants.

The living area of this traditional quarryman’s cottage has been knocked through to provide a nice big open plan space. At one end a large sofa and leather armchair face onto a large log fire sitting on a slate hearth. At breakfast time, the traditional dining table and chairs at the other end of the room will hopefully witness lots of animated discussions over the adventures that lay ahead as well as facilitating more tranquil family meals at the end of a busy day.

The kitchen through towards the back of the house is very well equipped with a large fridge freezer, electric oven and hob and washer dryer. Plenty of storage room in the plain white fitted units and a small breakfast bar is a welcome addition.

There are two main bedrooms upstairs; one double room and one twin room. The double looks out towards the sea whilst the twin room out over the tops of the neighbouring houses towards Snowdon itself. Both bedrooms are spotlessly clean with elegant fresh linen covering Victorian style beds. The family bathroom at the top of the stairs has a large shower cubicle and a plain white bathroom suite. There is a third unfurnished bedroom. Too small for a bed but perfect for a travel cot or small camp bed or luggage storage.

Floor Plans




The cottage is located on a steep hill leading up from the high-street of this bustling seaside town. The hill ensures that the cottage commands brilliant views over the town and the coastline beyond but the gradient may not suit anyone with mobility difficulties.

The back garden is small but has fantastic views. Here, guests can look out over treetops and chimney pots towards the famous castle rising up right in the heart of town. Beyond, the Cardigan Bay coastline can be seen curving from left to right towards Porthmadog and then left again towards the tip of the Llyn peninsula and the distant flash of Bardsey lighthouse.

Harlech is home to a couple of grocery shops, a nice selection of cafes and restaurants. Barmouth some 15 minutes to the south and Porthmadog 15 minutes to the north will provide guests with a larger selection of shops and cafes. No need to wander to find better beaches however. The golden sands of Harlech beach must be among the cleanest and nicest stretches of coastline in the UK.

No need for the car when looking for a country hike either. A walk up the hill from the cottage away from town will quickly bring you to the foothills of Cwm Bychan. Beautiful rolling hills that lay just in front of the steeper Rhinog Mountain Range. There are lots of adventure activity providers in the area. Everything from mountain biking, to gorge walking and from zip lining to underground caving can be enjoyed nearby.

Vicki Silver

We had a lovely time at Fron Hyfryd. The cottage was so well equipped and comfortable. Eirian was really helpful, and the parking permit, Bara brith and fire ready set for us were a lovely welcome! We would happily recommend it to others and hope to go stay again ourselves.


What a wonderful place to spend a week with the family. Beautiful views from all aspects of the house. Clean and tidy on arrival with a log fire ready for lighting at night. Fantastic gift of locally produced ice-cream vouchers as a treat. Well equipped kitchen for home cooked meals. We accidently left our child’s toy and the owner very kindly got in touch and posted it back to us. We had a great holiday.

Lovely cottage with fabulous views from the back garden over the castle and coast. Everything you need in the cottage.Shame that so many cafes and businesses are still closed after the pandemic. Few nice pubs at the bottom for food but coming back up the hills is quite a stunt – keeps you fit. Big thank you for the ice cream vouchers which was gorgeous. Excellent service from dioni will definitely use you again in the future.

We had a lovely week, the cottage was cosy and had a lovely feeling. It had everything there we needed. Ideal location, views from the cottage were stunning. If I had to knit pick, I would say perhaps the small 3 bedroom could be utilised to have more hanging space for clothes. We did notice one of the chair arms on the garden furniture, was loose and mobile, and possibly the garden furniture in general could be updated. We visited the Castle Bistro for a lovely evening meal and would definitely recommend the restaurant.

What a fantastic location looking across from Harlech castle and the superb beach there. The accommodation is perfect and very well presented. Parking which you have a pass provided for is away from property which is fine if steep. May not be the best choice if you have a pram but fine if everyone is of walking age. We are a family of 5 and we made do it is aimed at 4. The property is well equipped and has dishwasher and wash-tumble machine. So much to do in area and it’s stunning.

We had a lovely week at Fron Hyfryd in Harlech. The cottage was immaculate. It had everything we could need and a stunning view too! Sitting in the garden looking towards the castle and the coast was a pleasure. A great base to explore the area, and we would love to return.

Isobel Marie Craddock

This is a superb place to stay, roomy, light with quality fixtures and fittings. lovely bed linen and the house has a lovely view of the castle. Can’t really fault it, so a really solid 5 *****. Harlech is beautiful too and easy to walk around, unfortunately some cafes and local pub have shut due to COVID lockdown but there is still enough places to enjoy. The beach was fabulous and it is not often that you get to swim in warm sea water surrounded by the mountains, sand dunes and views across to the peninsular – a memorable swimming place.

Sheila Wallbank

Very well renovated cottage, light and airy. The small garden overlooking the castle is the perfect place for your morning cuppa or to watch the fantastic sunsets in the evening.
The parking permit is a particular boon since the hilly nature of the location in Harlech limits street parking. The footpaths above the cottage are delightful with fantastic views down to the coast.

David Bullock

Excellent cottage in a lovely setting. Well placed for walks along the beach and surrounding countryside. Facilities within the cottage and in the village were ideal. The loan of a car park pass was a lovely and welcome gesture. Would certainly look to return in the future.

denise Pendleton Snape

We had the most beautiful weekend in Harlech and the cottage we stayed in was just fantastic.
Clean & cosy.
Well decorated with plenty of room.
They even left us a pint of milk.
I literally could not fault the place.
We certainly made some memories.
Would recommend and will definitely book again.
Thank you so much.
